‘Open and cordial’ discussion between bishops, LCWR leadership

Catholic World News - November 13, 2012

Three bishops held an “open and cordial discussion” with leaders of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious about the doctrinal assessment of the organization by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, according to a joint statement released by Archbishop J. Peter Sartain and the organization’s president.

In the doctrinal assessment, the Congregation granted Archbishop Sartain, assisted by Bishop Leonard Blair and Bishop Thomas Paprocki, the mandate to revise the statutes of LCWR, to “review LCWR plans and programs,” “to create new LCWR programs,” “to review and offer guidance in the application of liturgical norms and texts,” and “to review LCWR links with affiliated organizations, e.g. Network and Resource Center for Religious Life.”

    The nuns see things from an altogether different Teihard de Chardin perspective than the bishops who are acting with the mantle of truth. The American media makes this appear to be nothing more than an exercise in democracy where the votes are equal.
